A contender just became a bottom feeder. I don’t if it’s good or bad? More competition for a top pick, oR less competition for a playoff spot?

Are we really sure that Houston got worse? Oladipo seems like a great fit next to Wall, certainly better than a fat and disinterested Harden.

I thought his fouling would improve as he became acclimated to starting instead of being an energy guy. I was partially right so far but it does seem to have plateaued at a still problematic level.

I like Holmes, but there is a glut of bigs out there. I wouldn’t shut the door on him but I’d also make sure to take note of what the available options are

If this reduces the Sacramento tax I am all for it,but lock up Holmes long term please.

It is a back and forth game thus far, no defense at all.

quickly becoming the identity of this years Kings team. If they’re hitting their shots, the games should be a high scoring back and forth battle. If they aren’t hitting them, they’ll get blown out while allowing opponents to score 120+ points

Kings need to step up the defense or this is going to be over by the 3rd qtr.

Obviously a fun quarter other than Lillard deep 3’s. Fox and Hield are hot. I’d like to make 1 observation…

Buddy’s team defense has really improved which has helped the Kings. He’s running on switches to contest 3’s and when the shot is up, he’s running to put a body for a board.

I’ve been really critical about Buddy’s defense but credit where credit is due…he has improved.

He still makes mental mistakes, but the effort is there.

….as soon as I type that he misses.

Did referee Leon Wood just help Haliburton off the floor?

He is better than a lot of announcers. At least he had Jerry Reynolds to learn from.

Only when compared to Jerry Reynolds, not when compared to his peers. Let’s stop pretending that most of the NBA announcing teams aren’t a dumpster fire. We had one of the best teams in the world for years, now we are regressing to the mean.

“He’s not as bad as some really terrible announcers.” Thanks for backing me up, L. 😀

I…. yeah…fair enough…but clearly there isn’t a lot of quality available. I mean, Mark Jackson still has a job for goodness sake.

I think Doug Christie is a good commentator. I like his enthusiasm, and the way he sees the game.

I’m gonna defend Doug here. He can be a little goofy but I do like his player’s perspective on things. He’s better with Mark Jones than he is with Kyle Draper.

I love these hot starts for the Kings. I like to imagine they’ll continue for three more quarters and the Kings will set scoring records.

I’m going to attempt to watch the whole game and remain calm when/if the blazers mount a comeback.
